Visit To The Holocaust Museum

Good Essays
The Holocaust refers to the systematic murder of more than six million Jews coordinated by the Nazi party. This was my second visit to the Holocaust museum, and I truly appreciated it much more than my first visit. Instead of reading every single word written upon the wall at the museum, it was the visual parts of the museum that really moved me and made me ask more questions about the Holocaust. When I walked through the box car I got the chills knowing that during the Holocaust it would be filled with more than 100 people and there was no bathroom for people to use. When I saw hundreds of dirty shoes piled up it really started to hit me how horrific and tragic the Holocaust truly was. These visual parts of the museum are what really got me

    The Holocaust: Sacrifice by Fire. The horrors began in 1933. By 1945, over 6 million men, women and children had been murdered. In the United States alone, there are over 100 Holocaust-related memorials which provide people with visual and factual information. For some people, certain historic events make a larger impact than others. For me, that event is the Holocaust. Since the moment I learned about it, it has never been far from my thoughts.

    The museum I chose to visit for my project was the Holocaust museum. My visit there was so far peaceful and reflective. The museum serves to not only remind the visitors about the victims of Holocaust but to also teach and explain to them what went on during that event. My experience turned out to be memorable but I wasn’t pulled in as I thought I it would be. The structure of the holocaust museum disappointed me. It was very small and looked lonely compared to the other vibrant museums. I wasn’t…
